Tanko Sabo, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) national delegate from Kaduna, returned to his local government to distribute the money he earned at the presidential primaries.
Sabo returned with cash for members of his local government after representing Sanga LGA in the primaries over the weekend.
He claimed that he used the money he earned from elections to help the less fortunate in his neighborhood.
Sabo vowed during his campaign for delegate that if elected, he would return any monetary gains he received to the community.
Giving a breakdown of how the money was disbursed, Sabo said he paid N6.9 million as “WAEC and NECO examination fees for 150 orphans and the underprivileged.”
He said N100,000 was given as logistics to the five-man committee set up to go around the schools to pay the examination fees.
Sabo also said N3.2 million was spent on the purchase of 42 customised jerseys, including goal keepers’ outfits, socks, and tracksuits for a football coach to promote the game among the youths in the area.
He added that the PDP ward executives in the LGA were not left out as he gave them N1.3 million.
He also said he spent N350,000 to support elders, women and “executive beggars known as maroka”.
He said he also gave one Danladi Janda N100,000.
Sabo detailed how he shared the money on his Facebook page and this has received reactions from Nigerians, causing Sabo to trend.
